How Bail Bonds Work
To better help you understand the workings of our bail bond company we feel it is important for you to have a basic understanding of how the bail bond system works.
When you or a loved one has been accused of a crime, it can be a substantial amount of passing time before the case can be resolved through the court system, and occasionally several court appearance and/or cases are required. During this time of court appearances and determinations, the accused person is normally allowed to remain free on bail except in certain circumstances in which the court system feels that person is deemed to be a flight risk, may be a danger to society or might try to interfere with the case at hand. The bail that is set and paid acts as security or collateral from the court to ensure that the accused shows up voluntarily to their court procedures. The bail amount will be refunded to the accused once they show up and will be forfeited if they do not.
Bail bonds are surety bonds which are used by the court to guarantee that the entire amount of the bail will be paid to the court should the party that was accused should fail to maintain and follow the specific terms of their release. Instead of either having to pay the entire bail amount or spending all of your time in a very uncomfortable and unpleasant cell until your trial date, we will work with you and the courts, arranging bail with the court system for only 10% of the total bail amount. Bail Bonds of Las Vegas understands that these situations rarely come at a time which you are financially prepared, so we will work with you and your family regarding the payments necessary in order to expedite your release or the release of your loved one.
After we post the bail the accused will be able to leave police custody immediately, after the process of release has been completed. Unfortunately this can be a very lengthy process in some cases, especially if you and your loved one are unaccustomed to court and jail procedures. But, once out you can see that by Bail Bonds of Las Vegas having posted your bail for you, this will afford you the ability to get out of police custody and provide you with a stronger case, allowing you to stand stronger for your case.
